    I recall a topic that mentioned how to remove the expired date for Flash Player to work. I had it done on my previous Windows 7 computer but it currently failed. I should have copied it to my backup drive but I skipped it since did not have time. I had to take another Windows 7 from storage  (2 more left still and hopefully will not need to use them any time soon) but I keep getting message that Flash is not support any more. I have to keep changing the date back to 1/10/21 to get it to work and than reset it back to current date.

     

    Does someone recall the topic? I tried searching but I am not finding it.

    Please do not recommend Windows 10. I am not rich and do not have several hours per day dealing with Windows 10 issues and setting up Firewall rules to block MS call home features.

      I think you need something like Nir Sofer’s small, free, portable RunAsDate.

      Rather than remove any expiry date, instead it will inject a time/date of your choice into Flash Player as it opens. This will save you having to adjust the system time back-and-forth,

      Better still you can script it. So, you can either create a shortcut and pass the parameters or create a BAT file. for example:

      RunAsDate.exe 14\02\2015 "C:\Program Files(86)\Flash Player\flashplayer.exe"

      Hope this helps…

      Here’s the last version that doesn’t have a kill switch.

      I think you are referring to this by using hex editor to remove 00 00 40 46 3E 6F 77 42.

      Check these two for important info:

      Thanks. I could not get it to work on all sites. Some sites need the current date after Flash player loads.

      Here’s the last version that doesn’t have a kill switch.

      Thanks. I will keep that in mind. I am hoping to use the update version I have without the switch.

      Thanks. Yes this is what I recall. But I thought it was an easy click and update. I will have to look into that since it seems to involve programing.
